About This Item

New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. First edition, second state. Good. In green pictorial cloth stamped in black and gilt. Page 283 a cancel. Misprints on pages 9, 13, 57, and 155 all corrected from initial misprints, indicating second-state issue of the first edition. A cheaply manufactured book, few copies survive that do not show wear and tear. In this case, the binding is worn along all edges, and the text block is a bit shaken (not tight), the frontispiece is partially detached, yet all hinges and joints are intact (unusual for this title), and the spine ends are only minimally worn and frayed. Text is clean, if not exactly bright. A good copy of the first edition of one of the three defining books of nineteenth-century America. BAL 3415.

Synopsis

Commonly named among the Great American novels, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, written by Mark Twain, is generally regarded as the sequel to his earlier novel, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; however, in Huckleberry Finn, Twain focused increasingly on the institution of slavery and the South. Narrated by Huckleberry “Huck” Finn in Southern antebellum vernacular, the novel gives vivid descriptions of people and daily life along the Mississippi River while following the adventure of Huck and a runaway slave, Jim, rafting their way to freedom.

About Rodger Friedman Rare Book Studio

Rodger Friedman Rare Book Studio owes its name and its inspiration to the traditional Italian studio bibliografico. These small antiquarian bookshops, typically run by individuals who combine deep scholarship with a love of the printed object, remind us that underlying the words "study" and "studio" is the Latin term for zeal and devotion, studium. Since 1993, my goal has been to match discerning collectors with extraordinary books and manuscripts.
